HELP IDENTIFYING SIGNATURE

Postby carolinechurch » 25 Mar 2010, 09:30

Any bright ideas about the witness signature at the bottom of the page?
The surname is MANN but I cannot make any sense of the rest, other than the EY, don't even know whether it's male or female!
Searching for my great x3 grandfather Raffaele CIACCIA, also known as Raphael/Ralph CHURCH. He was born in Napoli around 1792 and arrived in London before 1812 with his brother Saverio CIACCIA, where they married sisters Ann and Jane FURNEAUX. He switched between CHURCH and CIACCIA all his life, which has made it difficult enough to pin him down. I want to find his origin in Italy.

It could be Amey and this, though an unusual spelling, was in use in the past.

This link also gives masculine names.....

Thank you, I had wondered if it was Amey.
That's the trouble when there is no other handwriting from the same person to compare - and they had to use so many extra squiggles!
